The Big Hug Foundation is a small UK based charity dedicated to providing shelter and education to underprivileged children in India. Whilst we focus on providing children with basic necessities it is also our aim to support them in creating a sustainable future. The well being and development of the children we work with will always be at the forefront of our work. The children we support are all destitute; some are orphans and others are runaways escaping a lifetime of neglect and/or abuse. We aim to relieve these children of hardship and break the cycle of poverty by providing them with clean, safe, shelter, a real education and above all, a family.
